    First round was in the classroom, then the winners competed in the gym, then those winners would go on to do their faggit speeches against other schools.

    There'd always be kids who would write from the perspective of a common household object, like a light switch. "You think YOUR life is hard? I get flipped off a hundred times a day!"

    Over the years I did speeches about Sergio Aragones, Billy Bishop and Heinrich Schliemann. I got yelled at by the teacher during the Billy Bishop one because I was underrehearsed and obviously winging it. :jj:

    Just a team in high school. A few of them made a bet over whether they could bring up the subject of Jurassic Park and successfully incorporate it into whatever extemporaneous topic which was given. I think the subject turned out to be capital punishment, or something really serious.

    I love public speaking. Didn't need some nerd contest to know I excel at it.

    Yeah, that exists here too. A friend of mine signed up to improve her public speaking skills. No idea if it worked or not.
